Andre Dawkins is taking a leave of absences from the Duke team, as his older sister died over the weekend in a car crash. Events like what his family is going through remind us of what is more important than basketball. Prayers for him and his family. http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=4723037

My prayers are with him, his family, and the Duke team. I read that she was driving to watch him play when the crash happened. Sad news indeed...

What is worse is that she was on the road to go see him play. My prayers go out to him and his family.
